Segment ranking summary

The company is a leader among its peers in relation to plastic use and reporting on its GHG emissions, though could improve in the environment measurement area more broadly by increasing is disclosure on other topics. Furthermore, while McCormick provides good disclosure on food safety, it lacks commitments to increase the availability, affordability and accessibility of healthy foods, topics its peers have already begun to address. In the social measurement area, McCormick ranks poorly, with a lack of disclosure on key issues such as child and forced labour and land rights as well as efforts to promote and provide decent work for its workers.
